    I have a silver A3 and got the limo tints with a 45% on the front windows. Blends nicely!

    They apply them in situ, I had a guy who I use for all my cars called Capacino tints he comes out and does them at your home.

    I'm paying £140 for the rear, which is a discounted price, they usually charge £200

    I paid £120 for the rear but as I say I use him for all my cars so that should be discounted, I hope it is anyway lol

    Can I ask any of you to put photos of your rear screen as one of the things I never liked about tinting was how the heater lines look odd when tinted. Is this still the case ??

    load of bull
    every car front has got some degree of tint to the glass 30% will put any car over
    but its the time the place to get caught
    sometimes its a warning and fine
    sometimes a probition notice and fine to make sure you get them off
    and then sometimes its a probo fine and 3 points per side
    so its a gamble that i dont take anymore.

    So the 'untinted' glass is in fact tinted regardless?

    Definitely do don't look very tinted before I got them put on as I didn't want to make it illegal.

    Thankfully here in Aberdeen the cops are pretty lax about things like borderline tints, might be different if it was down South where I'd heard they're more strict. :/

    I know exactly what you mean about the rear window elements here is a close up they don't look too bad.

    The glass on my current A4 does have a very low tint in it all round already so its not completely clear glass to start with.

    This may be a stupid question but does the tinting on the rear window have to go on the inside as this is what causes the effect on the heater lines and this is only on the inside ??

    front screen 74% light through
    side front 70% light through

    99% of cars have a slight tint all round from factory
    so unless you have a tint man to check the factory tint you will go over
    iv used in the past 17% on front allowing around 13% for the factory tint and still got a fine

    No, they just removed all the panels and rear self to get to the glass. wasn't sure at first, but they showed me a A5 they did the week before and it looked good. Just went with it and was well pleased with the outcome. :yahoo:

    15% Rear and 50% front is what I have on my A4, the combination blends in nice IMO.

    I had no idea it was that expensive in the UK. What about legislation? Do have to pay anything to make legalize it?

    No legislation cost, just seems expensive down here vs that you guys are paying elsewhere...

    Noticed that a lot of people here saying dark smoke on the back, light smoke on the fronts.

    Does putting light smoke on the front push it over the legal limit?

    Front window needs 70% light coming through.
    https://www.gov.uk/tinted-vehicle-window-rules

    Back no limit.

    So I guess unless you are sure with the % through the front then you risk being fined.

    first time you would get a fine and rip it off at road side
    or fine and probition notice
    its a risk but 1000's get away with it
    its normaly traffic that do you not the normal plod
